    It's not installed by default (you can install MySQL during the install process if you choose) but the best way is to 1st find out if you have it installed.

    I recommend you open up 'terminal' or whatever you use for a command prompt.

    Make sure you're root and run the following commands:

    rpm -qa | grep mysql
    If that doesn't report that 'mysql' is installed then you just need to run one simple command to install it:

    yum install mysql
    Thats it.

    I honestly and personally recommend you use PostgreSQL over MySQL. Thats just my personal opinion.

    Post back if you need more help.
